    2012 Best of Year Awards: Projects

    Interior Design gathered over 800 vibrant members of the design and architecture community to celebrate the 2012 Best of Year Awards. Projects were honored in 45 categories, while Products recieved awards in 52 categories. Interior Design sends a giant thank you to Goldman Sachs, who hosted the event at their global headquarters in New York, and SHoP Architects, designers of the auditorium, who saved the day when the event was forced to switch venues after the lobby space of the IAC building experienced water damage from Hurricane Sandy. See all the winning firms and their projects below.
